First on the list is one of the earliest and simplest minecraft mini-games there are, Spleef. The basics of Spleef is that two-four players enter an arena of Sand, Snow, or a similar block (one that can be easily broken by a shovel). Each player has to destroy the ground under their opponents feet, making them fall into something such as Lava. Last man standing wins. Players are usually equipped with an iron or diamond shovel.PLAY ON MULTICUBE.NET
Trouble in Mineville
Based on the popular game, Trouble in Terrorist town. Trouble in Mineville is pretty easy to understand, after you’ve had a few tries at it. You and everyone else in the game will be assigned one of three groups to be in, Innocents, Terrorist and Detectives. The Innocents and Detectives jobs are to eliminate the terrorists and the Terrorists have to eliminate the Innocents and Detectives. Terrorists can see what rank everyone is, and must work together to secretly kill their enemies. Innocents must try to work out who is acting suspicious and has the hardest job in surviving. Detectives have sticks, which they can right-click on corpses to show who they were killed by. If a name appears a lot, it is most likely that the person is a terrorist. To get weapons, players scavenge the land to find crates with swords, bows, etc.PLAY ON PLAY.HIVEMC.COM
Player versus Player
One of the most well-known games of Minecraft, and number 8 on our list, is Player versus Player (or PVP). There are MANY variations of the game, Team PVP, Solo PVP, Kited PVP, and more. The most common variation is where players choose between a variety of kits, which consist of weapons, armor, and golden apples, and battle the other team(s) in an all-right gory battle of swords, bows and blood. Players get points by killing other players and the winning team is the team who has the most points. There is also a different variation called PVE (Player Versus Entity) in which a group of players choose kits and must fight deadly swarms of blood-thirsty monsters in order to win items to help them with later rounds of mobs. PVE also feature ‘Boss-Mobs’, monsters with armory, weapons, or the special abilities, like speed boosts or being able to throw you up into the air. Although this is a very well known Mini-Game, its position comes here as its not new or unique, but is definitely worth a try.

The Survival Games
One Capricorn, full of a bounty of chests with a bounty of Weaponry and Armory and Foodstuffs, everything required for survival, and it’s in throwing distance from you. The problem, 20 other players also want the same thing. So how do you survive, I hear you ask. Well, make a rush for the middle, get as much as you can and get out of there, fast! Because there isn’t any grace period, its as soon as the game starts, the PVP starts, which usually creates a big BloodBath, after the scavenge has finished. Roam around user built, dome surrounded arenas and hunt for chests which could also help you in your survival. Just try not to get in any fights. Try to survive to the last two tributes, and give it all you’ve got to survive and kill your opponent. Based on the popular book and film series. But beware, the arena has more dangers the meets the eye…
